ABSTRACT: Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms. This cross-sectional study was conducted among the medical and dental students of different colleges. A total of 340 medical and dental students, both male and female were included. The mean age of the students was 22.23±2.23 years. The mean age of male students was 23.23±1.23 years. The mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure among the medical students was 118.01±2.32mmHg and 79.21±3.21mmHg. The mean systolic and diastolic blood pressure among the medical students was 117.42±1.23mmHg and 78.32±2.19mmHg.
